from pinterest to real life
husband + wife.
what started as a pinterest mood board several years ago is now a lifestyle brand run by a husand and wife duo, justin & ariane svatina. fed up of the endless consumption in today's marketplace, they've set out to build a meaningful brand that can both entertain and contribute to positive change.
good design + good for the planet.
as a vegetarian company, we are committed to producing high-quality lifestyle products that are cruelty-free, mostly plant-based, and often involving recycled materials. our products feature original hand-drawn artworks made by ariane svatina & her team of artisans.
our mission to help
the svatina fund.
saying you care about something isn't the same as doing something about it. that's why a portion of our profits go to the svatina fund, helping to end human trafficking.
a heritage brand
originally founded in 1958.
joseph & maria svatina immigrated to canada from slovenia in 1958. upon their arrival in montréal, they founded the maria svatina corporation, a business centered around hand-woven fashion, art and home products crafted on vintage looms. for decades, they dressed prime ministers and socialites, until the tragic death of maria in 1985 at the young age of 50. the brand is being revived for a new era + generation by joseph & maria's grandson, justin svatina, and his wife ariane.
